# OCR Maths Paper 6 Higher watch

1. (Original post by seaspray)
I certainly hope you are right We were told that last Junes higher paper was completely impossible - apparently at our school, people came out crying thinking they had completely failed. Have you seen last Junes paper? Was it that much harder?
we did it as the mock...was much harder, only needed 65% for an A* on paper 5 and 71% on paper 6. I think an A was probably about 50%.
2. Crying over maths. Wow, that test must have been difficult then.
3. it werent that difficult i did it in my mock, i got a b it was 32% to get a B and 15.5% to get a C.
4. what did you lot get for that trigonometry question where it had a triangle with 2 lengths of 27 and 73 and an angle of 153 degrees?
5. 97km I think. Can't remember exactly. It was 90 something anyway.
6. Did anyone else find it more difficult than paper 5? I found it much more difficult!
7. thought this was far easier than the first test.
only difficult question was the radius of a circle.
quite sure I knew almost everything else
i just hope a good grade on this test will push up my mark as I made some silly mistakes on the non-calculator
8. i thought it was easier than paper 5, dunno why. i really hope that the boundary stays quite low. i think the distance on the bearings question was 97.8 wasn't it?

most of you are lucky, cause i've still got additional maths on monday which is impossible.
9. yeah it was 97.8 wich rounded to 98 , wud i still get marks for the simultaneous equations q cus i put the answers as x = 6 and then put 0 for sum reason and for y i put 3 and -3????
10. guys it doesn't make any difference what the grade boundary is. whether it's high or low doesnt really matter. each year the top 3% of candidates are given an A*.. it's as simple as that. it's unlikely that the standards nationwide change each year, so it's equally hard to get an A* every year.. even if the boundaries change, the same number of people get A*s, the 3% who are the best candidates in the country, who are of pretty much the same standard each year
11. Hope I have an A overall in my final grade
Think I did really good in the calculator paper
not so good in non calcultor
(simple errors!!!, maybe nerves aswell)
has anyone else made stupid mistakes which they know they should of got right
